Nothing makes my kids happier than rock hopping at the beach or in the mountains so I was very excited when I learned that an indoor rock climbing space had opened in our neighborhood last year. It is a great rainy day activity, and I love that my kids can really use their muscles and improve their coordination while having so much fun. Brooklyn Boulders has a variety of levels including one big practice wall that is perfect for very young or very inexperienced climbers...the "rocks" are big enough and close enough together that we all could climb to the top. Of course, there are plenty of more advanced areas too. They host birthday parties too...something I plan to take advantage of in the future.
